The National Sports Complex, first opened in 1998, has undergone a transformation and metamorphosed into the Kuala Lumpur Sports City (KLSC), offering world-class infrastructure, modern facilities and enhanced visitor experiences. The first phase of the KLSC involved the rejuvenation of the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, National Aquatic Centre and Axiata Arena. The RM1.1 billion second phase will commence in 2018 and will include serviced residences, retail and commercial facilities, such as a convention centre, youth hostel, park, library and sports museum, creating a modern and liveable integrated sports city. The overall development will no doubt serve as a catalyst to promote sports, recreation, health and wellness among Malaysians.
- The largest stadium in South East Asia
- The entire site is designed for the Malaysian climate, and the pedestrian-centred layout
